Iron exporter revealed that may explain common human disorder

...he iron into hemoglobin. When red blood cells die, macrophage cells consume them and recycle the iron they contain. Macrophages and liver cells also store any excess iron. Earlier work had identified a single protein that imports iron into cells. However, the evidence for ferroportin's role in exporting iron b...

Turning viruses into allies against cancer

...mor immunity stimulant called GM-CSF, (granulocyte macrophage colon stimulating factor). Its job is to induce an immune response to any surviving cancer cells released during the initial viral attack, essentially preventing the spread of these cells to other parts of the body. "This aims to treat metastatic di...

Why do aneurysms form? New studies suggest leading role for white blood cells

.... Days after the injury, far fewer neutrophils and macrophage whit blood cells were present in the aorta walls of the rats that lacked L-selectin. "Much further research is needed, but it's possible that a treatment based on L-selectin could be developed to prevent AAA development in high-risk patients," says ...

Shorter colds, milder flu may follow from newly revealed immune mechanism

...e, it is the opposite. Preventing the death of the macrophage allows the host to ultimately clear the viral debris and so finally halt the infection. Balancing these cell death and survival pathways can determine whether the virus or the host wins the battle." Next, the researchers will look further at precise...

How does Mycobacterium tuberculosis infect the lung?

...ways. They concentrated on a type of cell called a macrophage (the natural target of Mycobacterium) and found that macrophages from patients with TB had much more the DC-SIGN protein on their surface than macrophages from patients with other diseases or from the control individuals. They then took macrophages...

Carnegie Mellon develops non-invasive technique to detect transplant rejection at cellular level

...s transplant rejection non-invasively by observing macrophage accumulation in heart tissues using MRI. "We were able to use MRI to visualize individual macrophages. By tracking individual cells, we also were able to observe, for the first time, that rejection progresses from the outside of the heart to the in...

UCSB researchers discover shape matters to macrophages

...s discovery, it was believed that the ability of a macrophage to process a particle through phagocytosis was dependent solely on its size. Previous studies have been performed only with spherical samples because it was presumed that size was the main issue in phagocytosis, and because fabrication of non-spheric...

Researchers discover 'acquired' DNA key to certain bacterial infection

...nding the mechanism by how M. avium penetrates the macrophage and infects humans may eventually lead to interventions that can prevent, or at least, reduce the chance of infections, though Bermudez cautioned that it is early in the process. “We still don’t know what most of the individual genes do,” he said,...
